Running out of gas could lead to interesting incidents in the world of Grand Theft Auto V but is it really a good idea?
Fueling Car in GTA 5: A Good Idea?
Gas Stations have featured in every game in the Grand Theft Auto series since Grand Theft Auto III although they are not interactive.
Except for in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, where they are used to create molotovs, however the pumps can be blown up with a collision or gun shots, and some service stations in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas have accessible interiors, being the same as 24/7 stores in the game.
With that said, having to re-fuel vehicles would only serve as an inconvenience, apart from the fact that it would use up valuable gaming time to complete the process there’s also the issue of choosing the correct fuel to put in the vehicle.
Imagine this, you go into a fuel station and put diesel into a petrol-engine vehicle, if this feature is in, then the vehicle wouldn’t work would it?
If it does then that would he highly illogical, which we believe would look really stupid.
If re-fueling is in, and realistic, it would cause problems and would take a considerable amount of effort to implement. Think about how a player would deal with putting the wrong fuel in.
In short; No re-fueling in GTA V, thank you.
